Also, it has 2GB 667 ram.

If I add a decent graphics card and Windows 7 or 8 to this, can I make use of this system? If not, which parts can I salvage?


I've had this system for 4 years or more and haven't really been putting it to good use. It's had Ubuntu installed on it and no graphics card was ever added.

Think your board is AM2 and could not take in AM3 chips? For me investing in a more current/powerful platform especially for gaming is the smarter move i'm afraid?
